Instawork is Off to the Races in Louisville, Offering Businesses an Immediate Connection to Skilled Workers

The flexible work platform matches a network of more than 23,000 on-demand hourly workers with Kentucky businesses.

Instawork launches in Louisville

Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with a network of over 4 million skilled workers, announced today the platform's availability in the Louisville, Kentucky, area. The platform specializes in connecting businesses with workers based on their unique business needs while providing workers the choice to decide when, where, and how they work best.

The announcement comes as city leaders predict an economic boom and for the city to pass pre-pandemic economic levels this year. Louisville is also in the midst of the Kentucky Derby festivities with this Saturday's race and related tourism events expected to generate more than 36 million dollars and attendance in the hundreds of thousands. 

"Utilizing our flexible work platform is ideal when cities and their local businesses anticipate a surge in activity, just as Louisville will see this week with the Kentucky Derby," said Kira Caban, Instawork's Head of Strategic Communications. "Events like this are crucial for the area economy and Instawork Pros are answering the call when reliable, skilled staff is needed during peak times like this and beyond."

More than 23,000 people in Louisville have already downloaded the Instawork app and are working to staff business locations across the area. The most common role for Instawork in Louisville is general labor, but other positions in the hospitality industry are also offered. Local workers can easily create a profile, find a shift that matches their skills and interests, and start working in as little as 24 hours. 

In Louisville, the average hourly pay rate on the Instawork platform is $14.86 per hour, more than double the city's $7.25 minimum wage. That steep increase in earnings gives local residents an easier way to make ends meet during a continued period of inflation.

Businesses across the Bluegrass State that rely on Instawork range from nationally-recognized hotels and restaurant groups to some of the state's favorite local hot spots and event venues. They have easy access to quality, reliable workers following Instawork's announcement that over 1 million people joined the app ahead of last year's busy holiday season.

In 2022, Instawork was ranked in the top 10% of the country's fastest-growing companies by Inc. 5000 and was included in the Forbes Next Billion Dollar Startup list. Instawork was also named the 2022 ACE Award recipient for "Best Innovation," one of the "Best Business Apps" by Business Insider.
